Professional and Personal Development Starts Here

Experience is a collaborative group of young professionals who coordinate meaningful events that connect industry leaders, visionaries, and educators with our region’s next generation of trailblazers. Experience is a series of events that focuses on leadership and professional development, living in the Roanoke Region and the outdoors, and culminates with an annual conference each year.

It’s more than just networking. Experience is designed to provide meaningful events that provide an authentic environment for young professionals and leaders to brainstorm and connect. Our mission is to be the region’s resource for connecting, empowering, attracting, and retaining talent for a more robust, dynamic community.
